After she left school, Chambers worked on Roman-Road-market in east London. Little Vinny on the other hand is a changed man, but previous readers will know just what he's done in the past and I couldn't read quick enough knowing that those secrets just had to come out in full before this book was over. One bloody night sets Vinny on the path of desperate vengeance, but will the Butlers emerge stronger than ever, or is the East End code of honour as good as dead? Jo fell for Vinny Butler's good looks, but she's stood at one graveside too many and now she's buried her heart as well. Nancy is desperate to leave, and though she would never turn her back on her children, every step they take in their father's footsteps destroys her a little more. The reason I think is because this book is a culmination of two series all coming together for the big finale. Backstabber sees the return of the now notorious Butler family, and whereas the previous Butler book, Tainted Love, saw a brief return of Eddie Mitchell, Backstabber features both families with Eddie and Vinny going into business together.
Book three in the Butler family saga. Thank you very much for visiting Book Series In Order. There was never a dull moment. Chambers has a three book series: The Traitor Chambers,Victim and The Feud. While Kimberley Chambers was doing a pretty good job of giving you bits and pieces of the back stories, I still felt a little loss. » » Kimberley Chambers The latest book in the series is almost here! There's a spark between Vaughn and Casey but she can't let herself get hurt, not again. Prepare yourself… the Butler Family are back, and we observe as they battle their way through life from 1986 to 2001.
Kimberley Chambers became a published author in 2008 with the novel Billie Jo. I and probably every single one of her die hard fans was ecstatic when I found out that she would be reintroducing Eddie Mitchell and his family because readers have been crying out for a return from them ever since Kim was signed to HarperCollins. Fans all across the world eagerly await the release of her next novel, Payback. Full of sadistic violence, torture, murder, abortions, deceit and addiction, it is brilliant. Maureen is told a terrible secret which threatens to rip her family apart. While Kimberley Chambers was doing a pretty good job of giving you bits and pieces of the back stories, I still felt a little loss. Generally, the thrill never stops! It just came across as a darker book.
But you keep your family right where you can see them. Kim offers some light relief alongside the heavier stuff thanks to Queenie who is a larger than life character, even more so when she's introduced to Eddie Mitchell's mother-in-law, Joycie. Backstabber is the Mitchells and the Butlers story. It really is like your favourite television soap apart from instead of watching it, you are reading about it. I found the first part of the book a little slow. What a way to end a series! These series' have made me laugh out loud and shed a few tears.
Extraordinary people those East End gangsters. But there were still laugh out loud moments and by the way Queenie has a new friend. This is a family that you will love and hate at the same time. I really enjoyed each series. Vinny is now aged 56 and life is looking good and certainly on the up, new club and at last he has met the one woman who might just be someone he wants to settle down with.
There seemed to be every crime going thrown in, just for the shock value. The Mitchells and the O'Haras have been enemies for years. The Mitchell family are still warm and loyal and a massacre brings the two family together in grief x Glad author reminds readers of their past misdemeanors and crimes as have forgotten bits of it, as this finale though tragic, reminds you of their family conflicts. From taxi driver to bestselling novelist, Chambers has captivated the world with a gritty crime aesthetic and shocking tales of prostitution, drugs, and crime. From the unwavering matriarch Queenie, to her hard as nails sons Vinny and Michael and their various offspring, this is an East End family you wouldn't want to cross. Well done Kimberly better then Martina Cole,jessie Keane, Roberta kray.
It pretty much follows through from Tainted Love, which was a big 6 Star read last year for me. Married to an alcoholic and stuck on a council estate in East London, she scrimps and saves to bring up her three children alone. And for those of you that haven't read it the series I cannot recommend it enough. The story focuses on what happens to the characters after the shooting and on Vinny reaping his revenge. One a gangland family, the other travellers, they resort to violence to solve problems between them. She does recap on the other books throughout this book but I do believe you should read the series of the Butlers and the Mitchells to really enjoy the climax.
Only two characters had any real depth and they were the two older mothers. Now someone has changed the rules - women and children are fair game and one of the Butlers is going to end up six feet under. Merging these two families together was one of the best things I've read in fiction and it results in one epic and unforgettable showdown. And with the brothers joined at the hip, Roy may just be in the firing line too. There are some families that welcome newcomers with open arms, then there are the Butlers.
I mean wow I am totally blown away. Book Description: With family like this, who needs enemies… There are some families that welcome newcomers with open arms, then there are the Butlers. There went my day and if I hadn't had things to do I would have devoured it in one straight sitting. This really is the best book yet! The third novel in the compulsive Mitchells and O'Haras trilogy. After a while, she became dissatisfied with changes that were occurring in the market.
